Commander Kirk Baumer sat sprawled out on his cot. The cell he was in now was just as plain as the others he'd seen, but something seemed different. There was no longer a guard hovering beside the door, maybe the rebels finally trusted him. Kirk felt his gut contract, but do I want them to trust me?

Beside his cot Lara Jules sighed, she hugged her legs as she slowly rocked against the wall, "I wonder whats happening out there?"

Kirk nodded slowly, "Yeah, but what can we do about it? They don't trust us, and I'm not sure we deserve their trust either."

Lara sat bolt straight at those words, "What are you thinking Kirk?"

"Maybe the rebellion is right, maybe the empire needs changing," Kirk spoke quietly. He glanced at her, "What should we do?"

Lara smiled slightly, "I think you know Kirk."

The door slowly clanked open and Merick stepped inside, "Commander, a word."

Merick led Baumer to his cabin. They enter and the door locked. Merick activated a device which would stop anybody spying on them.
"What you are about to be briefed about is secret. If I hear of a leak I shall personnal kill you."
"I understand." said Baumer. He looked absolutely delighted to be let out of his cell.
Merick showed him Ackbar's message and how the defence of Sluis Van had been organised.
"The only reason I have shown you this." started Merick "is because i wish you and you major to fly with the fighters which will defend the shipyards. You wil be under General Rechtmann's orders. I have also decided to allow you to circulate freely aroud the base. But if anything happens you have been warned. Is this well understood?"

"Yes General, I understand," Kirk nodded slowly, "So Thrawn has targeted Sluis Van." He sighed, "I've seen Thrawn, there is no way you'll be able to match him force on force, even if you had twice the number of ships that he does, he's a genius general."

Merick sighed, "I 'll keep that in mind Commander, we're trying to pull together a plan that will ensure a victory for our forces." He glanced into the corner of his office, slowly an aged man stepped into the light, "General Dodonna, are the prototypes ready?"

He smiled slightly, "The A-wings will be ready for the engagement, hopefully if my old friend takes a stand we can snatch a victory from this Impeiral mastermind."

OOC - Hold on, this is supposed to be Pre-ANH, what are A-wings doing here?

OOC: Jan Dodonna designed the A-wing, considering that he was captured just days after Yavin, there would have been a few squadrons deployed shortly before Yavin. This is the first squadron, flying prototypes.

" And you must understand Commander that if the Imperials arrive transports will evacuate as much as possible. But if we are lucky these prototypes could mean a victory for us." Merick got up and contacted Evan.
"General. Could you please meet me in hangar 29C."
After confirming Evan cut the communication.
"Follow me Commander. I want to know what you and Rechtmann think of the new fighter."

Kirk followed the General to a turbolift and they descended to the Hanger bay in silence. The doors slid open and Kirk was greeted by twelve red and white angular starfighters. Crewman and maintanance personel scrambled across the craft doing last minute welds and modifications.

Kirk found his mouth hanging open at the appearance of the craft, their wedge shape and tiny size would make them difficult to hit. His mind raced back to the V-38 prototype he'd seen. Then as Kirk wandered around one ofthe craft he saw the engineers hoisting an engine into the rear of the craft. a spherical dish was affixed to the end and Kirk remembered the tie's vectoring system, this craft's engine had one identical to the V-38s.

One of the engineers cursed at the engine's thrust vectoring nozzel, "Sir, I know the Event Horizon Engine specs have this, but it'll be a pain to maintain, why not just use a pair of vectoring paddles, it'll make these things ready for action sooner."

Kirk felt his eyes widen, "Thats what the imperial V-38 had!"

General Merick smiled, "Dodonna incorperated the stolen engine plans into the design, go ahead lieutenant we need these things operational."

The Lieutenant in charge of mounting the engines nodded, "Alright get that nozzel off, we'll go with the old vectoring paddels, do you have any spares from a Y-wing?" One of the engineers nodded, "Use them." The mechanics removed the spherical cover over the engine's rear and replaced it with a thrust vectoring set sliced off of a Y-wing's maintance kit. They hastily hooked up the controls and slid the engine into position and locked it in place, "Sir this one is ready."

"Good job lieutenant, well Commander, think you could handle one of these?"

"Sir, if a bathtub had wings I could fly it."

Evan sat in his officer, thinking intensly. This would not be just another engagement, Evan knew it. He knew what was coming. More Rebels ships arrived by the day, doubtlessly the Imperials would have a huge fleet to match the Rebels. Doubtlessly both sides would have tricks up their sleeves.
As for fighters, the news was all good. Commander Baumer was to lead a squadron of the experimental A-wings. Evan still didn't completly trust him and would certainly keep an eye on him. Other than that, there were hundreds of Rebel fighters prepared to defend Sluis Van to the death. Evan was proud to be the leader of them all.
The stage was set for the greatest battle thus far of the Galactic Civil War. Evan knew that many of the brave pilots would die, and he himself might not live through the battle, but death did not scare him. He had faced it every mission, and although he never had thought he would die, any mission could have been a trap that ended his life. Any mission could have ended his life.
Many heros of the Alliance had come to defend Sluis Van. Admiral Helos in the Valiant. Ackbar in the Liberty. Merick in the Chronicle. Doubtlessly the Imperials would bring their own share of heros. Evan was counting on Noreto and Thrawn.
There was a knock on Evan's door.
"Come in...."

Merick entrered the General's room. He saluted and sat down.
"Are your pilots ready?" he asked
"As ready as can be. Has intelligence comfirmed the Imperials target?"
Merick stayed silent a moment before answering.
"A large Imperial task force has just left Corellia... They had set a course for these shipyards."
Evan stared at Merick for a moment as if considering how to answer. Finally he got up, poured himself a glass of the strong corellian brandy he got fom one of the smugglers and emptied his glass in one straight.
"Well I guess this is it. How long till they get here?"
"3 hours at the most." answered Merick
"Well I had better go and prepare my squadrons." as Evan was leaving Merick called out
"General! I just wanted to say that if we didn't survive, it wasd an honor to fight by your side."
Evan looked at Merick for a moment, smilled, saluted and left to go and protect Sluis Van. Merick switched on his Comlink.
"This is Ioor I need a shuttle to bring me to my ship." before he left Merick did as the General and emptied a glass of Brandy. He then left for the hangar.

OOC: We can continue the preparations for the final battle, but hold the event off until thier return. Remember, you characters don't have to die in the battle, and you don't have to loose all of your ships. Plus, if the Empire takes Sluis Van, there can be a post ANH battle after we finish the other RPGs going on, where the Rebels take it back, maybe a post-ESB setting? That way they have the shipyards to build up thier fleet for Endor.

Location: If there's a brilliant center to the Universe, Costa Rica is the farthest away from it.
OOC: Of all places did you have to write that here? There's a RPG Discussion thread somewhere else.

IC: I'll write something up later, to get the pre-battle started...
